Picking the right commercial solar financing option is an important first step in getting a system installed at your business.

Whether you want to lease or own your business’ solar solution, energy companies like Sunnova offer a variety of flexible, affordable plans allowing you to choose one that makes the most financial sense.

If you’re not yet sure what the best commercial solar financing option is for your organization, this breakdown — each starting with a high-level overview and then digging into the benefits of Sunnova’s plan — is designed to point you in the right direction.

 

Commercial Solar Lease

With a commercial solar lease, you’d pay a predictable monthly fee to use the equipment offered by your solar provider. It’s a popular choice for businesses that want to invest in solar without breaking the bank.

A lease might be right for your organization if:

  • You want to go solar without significantly impacting your cash flow.
  • You don’t have the tax liability to take advantage of the federal tax incentive.
  • You don’t want to increase your expenses by adding the system to your insurance.
  • You can’t take on any more debt in order to keep a certain debt-to-income (DTI) ratio.

Commercial Solar Loan

If you’re looking for a more direct investment in your solar power, then a solar loan is the financing option for you. Just as you would with any other capital investment, your business would take out a loan to purchase and install your commercial solar panels.

A loan might be right for your organization if:

  • You want to go solar without significant upfront costs.
  • You can take on more debt and not have any DTI concerns.
  • You have the tax liability to take advantage of federal tax incentives.See Disclaimer Below
